Event Type: 

Is Discrimination a Default in
Today’s Computational Systems?
 
Prof. Meredith Broussard, Data Journalism at NYU
 
THURSDAY, NOV. 8, 2018, 4:30-6PM
INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS BUILDING 270B
 
This talk explores the computational side of social issues like the rise of disinformation, the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal, autonomous car deaths, and online harassment. Broussard argues that these social ills can be understood as arising from a kind of bias called technochauvinism that sees computational solutions as superior to all others. Technochauvinism intersects with other social ills such as racial and gender bias in counterproductive ways.
